Houses in first part are I bet in Oakland Co; some of it maybe B'ham or Lathrup area and then I think some scenes from SW Detroit followed by drive up Michigan Ave. Love the plastic wrap left on the lampshade in the Christmas scene - we used to think that was classy. Notice houseload of people are visiting on Christmas and the TV set is NOT on. Never see that anymore.

The beach scenes seem to be Leelanau area, maybe, or possibly Ludington. Then of course the tulip festival in Holland.

I like the mix of scenery, neighborhoods and people. Keeps this long film interesting.

Not a bad home movie here, though it runs far too long. Full of people! Old ones! Young ones! We do get out of the house and go tobagganing, sightseeing, etc. My minds a blur at the moment after all of that.
